Kim Kardashian’s Plastic Surgery? Shocking New Photos!
Is Kim Kardashian the new Heidi Montag? The reality star is used to getting all kinds of attention, but the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has set tongues wagging and the Internet buzzing with her shocking new appearance at a recent event.
The photo (you can click on it to make it bigger) on the right was from taken on April 7th, 2010 as Kim Kardashian hosted the Bravada International launch party in Los Angeles. Kim Kardashian has always been rumored to have had work done on her face and body, something she has always denied, but then again she denied having a sex tape years ago, and we all know how that turned out.
Photos from this event show some very noticeable differences in her face compared to what she looked like in 2006, or even what she looked like just a year ago. You can see more photos of Kim below.
The 29 year-old E! star, who ended her relationship Reggie Bush just two weeks ago, looks to have had some cheek implants, face injections, a nose job, and perhaps some botox or face lift. No telling on what she has done to the rest of her body.
Hollywood is such a weird place, as once again, there was no reason for Kim to drastically alter her look, she looked just fine before. Hopefully Kim can stop altering her face before she ends up looking like the cat lady.
When some people think cosmetic surgery, Kim Kardashian is one of the celebrities that immediately jumps to mind.
Born on October 21st, 1980, Kim, on the surface at least, seems like one of those celebrities who is famous just for the media frenzy surrounding her mother, her stepfather and of course her sisters.
Kim Kardashian along with her sisters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian are the daughters of the late Robert Kardashian.
Her mother is Kris Jenner who is married to former Olympic decathlete and gold medalist and certainly no stranger to the world of cosmetic enhancement, Bruce Jenner.
An exotic blend of Armenian and Scottish heritage, she possesses a unique look that she has used to her advantage becoming a model, a fashion fixture and later on an actress and a hostess.
She’s no stranger to controversy either, given that she’s one of the celebrities out there with a famous sex tape, but she’s also been on several television shows hosted by E! Entertainment, most notably Keeping Up With The Kim Kardashian which has already spawned more spin-offs than you might think.
Since she relies so heavily on her looks, many are bound to ask whether Kim has gotten any cosmetic work done?
Has She Had Face Surgery?
There have been many rumors flying, both online and in the tabloids, about the work that Kim is supposed to have had done on herself.
Everything from face surgery, a nose job (what professionals refer to as a rhinoplasty), to breast implants to chemical peels, botox injections (see also Nicole Kidman) and even butt implants.
Like Jenni Farley (see Jwoww’s surgery) and Lady Gaga, there are all sorts of rumors when the truth may be quite disappointing.
Of course, it isn’t as though certain eminent plastic surgeons have stepped forward into the spotlight to tell all of this to reporters; part of their profession is supposed to be discretion and confidentiality after all.
But most fans, or just those who accuse Kim of going under the knife, will use the tried and tested method of comparing recent photographs to one in the past to point out how she may have physically changed as evidence of surgical procedures.
Of course, it is important that you keep an open mind since if you’re sure something is there you’re going to end up seeing it even if no one else does.
First of all, the human body changes over time and even if a person is recognizable, she isn’t going to look like the same person she was even a few years ago.
So it’s important that if you’re using pictures to support claims of cosmetic enhancement that the pictures were taken so close together that any changes can’t be a result of nature.
More than that though, pictures can be deceiving for other reasons.
In this video-photo slideshow, you can clearly see the extent of the problem.
The before and after pictures, however, certainly plant more than the occasional seed of doubt, no matter what Kim ‘officially’ says.
Much like a scientific experiment, two photographs have to be as similar as possible for you to use them reliably.
Kim K Before and After?
Kim has gone on the record with ABC’s Cynthia McFadden to deny that she has had any sort of surgery done.
She even went so far as to have a bit of fun at her own expense, saying:
“If I take this bra off, you will tell me I need to get them done.”
Kim Kardashian continued the interview, saying that she isn’t against plastic surgery. A good position to hold for a celebrity since this type of surgical intervention has been an institution ever since Marilyn Monroe (see also did Marilyn Monroe have plastic surgery?) got work done on her nose and chin to create her classic, timeless look.
However Kim Kardashian also said that as things stood as of May 2010, the furthest she’d gone down that particular road was to get botox injections which, according to most people, is a cosmetic procedure but doesn’t quite qualify as plastic surgery. Other stars have also confessed to Botox without directly going under the surgeon’s knife. Kyra Sedgwick’s confession is one such example.
Kim Kardashian also denied rumors of a rhinoplasty, saying that “I’ve never had my nose done“, something which she admitted was something of an irony since her nose is, according to her, one of her biggest insecurities about her look.
Other stars it seems have also succumbed to such a suggestion – see Megan Fox after surgery.
She did admit going to a doctor and getting the pictures taken to see what she would look like if she had decided to go through with a certain surgery procedure on her nose.
In addition to denying that she’s had her nose fixed surgically, Kim has also had X-rays done on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians to prove that her butt doesn’t have any implants in it to give her behind the very recognizable curve she sports.
Is Kim a Lying Fake?
Despite all these attempts to prove the contrary, some observers have sorted through the photo archives to produce a number of video comparisons.
Of course, all of Kim’s denials haven’t stopped the naysayers who claim that the opposite is true. Some people, from the camp that expect any celebrity to deny having gotten plastic surgery, point out that taking Kim’s word doesn’t exactly smack of real digging into the issue of whether or not her looks are natural.
Some individuals think the evidence is so overwhelming they have labelled her a fake. You can make up your own mind by considering them yourself.
Others, who might seem more reasonable such as Dr. Anthony Youn, point out that just because one procedure didn’t happen doesn’t mean others haven’t. Youn, in response to Kardashian’s proving that she didn’t have butt implants, posted on his blog that the absence of implants didn’t mean that natural fat couldn’t have been used to plump her rear, thereby creating a natural look without the tell-tale implants.
At the end of the day though, there is nothing more substantial than rumors and speculation about what Kim may or may not have had done on the operating table. Like other famous celebrities such as Erica Durance, the jury is still out.
So far she’s denied any cosmetic procedures, but hasn’t shut the door on future possibilities, and that’s the story that she’s sticking to. In order to naysay that you’d need to have someone with evidence or proof. More than a red circle on a supposed before and after picture.
